and the gatecrasher award goes to…

ON A PARTICULARLY BRILLIANT, STAR-STUDDED EVENING TO CELEBRATE THE GLAMOUR WOMEN OF THE YEAR AWARDS, IN ASSOCIATION WITH NEXT, I WAS SURPRISED TO FIND A DEMON IN OUR MIDST. Among the smiles and the glitter and A-lister after A-lister striding onstage to collect an award – that you voted to give them – our winners kept telling us, in one way or another, that we must have made a mistake. Jourdan Dunn, upon winning Entrepreneur of the Year, told us that she’d written in her diary the night before that she didn’t think she deserved the award. Anna Kendrick (bottom) joked that her literary editor told her that her Writer of the Year award usually went to “real” authors. Amy Poehler (below) quipped that, as this was a year for Americans…

“my secret superpower”

@rosiehw Big thank you to everyone at Glamour, especially @joelvinglamour & @alexsteinherr, still feels so special to be on the cover of a magazine I grew up reading! Reading The Power Of Being Quiet has instilled a con?idence in me that I never knew I had. I’ve always struggled with being an introvert, ?inding it di?icult to make my voice heard. I’ve been bullied for my shyness and many have misconstrued it as rudeness. Your feature made me realise that listening, observing and using fewer (but often more heartfelt) words are just as powerful as shouting.

The nifty tool removes 99.5% of dirt, oil and make-up, while brushing away dead skin cells and…

who? what? wear

Every fashionable thing you need to know now We’ve all fallen down it: the Instagram rabbit hole. You know, that ‘quick look’ that becomes a solid hour (or two) engrossed in strangers’ holiday pics. Yet for the world’s most inluential buyers, scrolling isn’t about tuning out, but tuning in. Keep sieving through the selies and you might strike sartorial gold. What MySpace did for music, Insta’s doing for designers – it’s giving them a free, global stage. “It’s an immense platform to discover talent,” says Net-A.Porter’s retail fashion director Lisa Aiken, who found Simon Miller’s cult Bonsai bucket bags on Insta. Shopbop’s fashion director Caroline Maguire describes it as “a magazine, TV show and blog in one”. So what does this mean for designers? “It’s a modern business card,” says Amina Muaddi,…

knee-high boots?

I LAST DIPPED MY TOES INTO KNEE_HIGH BOOTS BACK IN THE EARLY NOUGHTIES, teaming them with an off-theshoulder peasant top and skintight jeans. Don’t judge me, this look was on-trend at the time… wasn’t it? Admittedly, the whole thing was far from effortless, but I committed to this as my ‘look’. More recently, I was pleased to see Reese Witherspoon’s Big Little Lies character rocking boots and jeans, but while I love Madeline’s Monterey-mom style, I’m not looking to emulate it or take a fashion Tardis trip back to 2002. So, how to make knee-high boots feel relevant today? Well, think Céline, Valentino, Mulberry. They showed a fabulous array of knee-high boots in their A/W17 shows, and after an online skim-through, I hit upon a simple formula: sturdy or .lat boots…

major props

Just imagine a squad of girls, dressed to slay any potential selfies, sitting around a dinner party table with the remnants of a fabulous feast around them. No, this isn’t Saturday night round Alexa’s. It’s actually Molly Goddard’s fashion show. Sure, models walked in her amazing tulle creations, showing them off to the assembled press, but they also interacted with the meticulously created set. Welcome to a catwalk show in 2017. Models strutting against a bright white background is out. Sets – the more breathtaking the better – are in. Along with Molly, there was Saint Laurent’s elegantly distressed building, Peter Pilotto’s art fest (with carpets and paintings everywhere), and Henry Moore sculptures on the Burberry catwalk. Molly – who worked with her mother, Sarah Edwards, to create a dinner party inside…

break the rules

Sofía Sanchez de Betak(@chufy, 127k followers) What are you wearing now and into A/W17? “Cashmere from The Row and Equipment, jumpsuits for working at home (not for travelling – never again), Frame jeans in light denim, a poncho, short brown riding boots and a chunky necklace.” What one item in your wardrobe gives the best trans-seasonal mileage? “Short brown Prada boots. I wear them everywhere, all year round.” What’s your most-liked Instagram picture? “Me on horseback with a giraffe [in the background]: it’s beautiful and totally crazy.” Smart girls don’t really dress for the time of year any more: they’re in a constant state of trans-seasonal style, which navigates both the weather and next season’s trends. It’s the style equivalent of booking a mini-break, ie wardrobereviving. It’s also a total gift when you live in a country…
